THE WORK 2015: Application Deadline Extended to Nov 11

We have extended the deadline for the entrance assessment to November 11! (Previously, it was November 7).

There are four requirements to be considered for entrance into the Vintage Pilates Master’s Program: THE WORK.

  1. You must be a certified Pilates instructor (with a certificate of completion from a comprehensive program)
  2. You must have at least two years of Pilates teaching experience
  3. You must have completed the application for THE WORK (download the application packet here)
  4. And, you must pass the entrance assessment.

What is the entrance assessment? It is an assessment of your mastery of the Reformer. Many students spend a minimum of six months preparing for this assessment. We are looking for a high level of proficiency, an understanding of the two way stretch, the back connection, a strong center and a facility with both the order and the exercises.

Here is a list of the order of exercises in the assessment. It is advisable to work with a Vintage Pilates instructor to prep—all our teachers have completed, or are in the process of completing THE WORK, so they know what Jay, Karen and Sandy are looking for, in potential participants of the program.

If you have any questions, want help scheduling your assessment, or just want to send in your application, you can contact us at
